LMAX Exchange:
Low-Latency FX Trading

The first FCA-regulated Multilateral Trading Facility (MTF) for FX trading uses Azul Platform Prime as its technology foundation.

Challenge
  • All of LMAX Exchange’s latency-sensitive and throughput-critical systems were experiencing the typical performance issues associated with Java’s garbage collection operations.
Solution
  • LMAX Exchange moved all of its Java-based applications to Azul Platform Prime, incrementing from most critical to less critical over a two-year period.
Result
  • Low latency trade execution is ensured.
  • Engineer time is freed up; no more battling garbage collection in code; less performance tuning.
  • Scalability has improved to support LMAX’s rapid growth.
  • No changes were needed to LMAX’s unique software architecture or development approach.
We have enjoyed a very successful partnership with Azul over the past seven years, and value the innovations it continues to bring as a strong independent Java provider.

A truly superior Java runtime using up to 50% less infrastructure.

Azul Platform Prime turbocharges the performance and scalability of your Java ecosystem with a hyper-optimized runtime that ensures consistent response times, reduces system stalls, and delivers better customer experiences—all with far less infrastructure.
